You DO get that kind of dirty fooling around if you're doing it right...

Not an issue. But then 20 years ago my wife modeled for me and assisted at other shoots. She knows when I come home from a shoot sweaty, filthy and exhausted that it's from legitimate work. You don't get that kind of dirty from fooling around.

im glad i saw this post...ive been dating my gf for a year...2 if you count the year we werent official...she didnt care much about me shooting models and half naked women...but after that magical one year mark, it shifted....and she is the one who i will marry in the future, no doubt about it....and she does trust me, there are no trust issues

at times she doesnt care, and then she does...she asks why i dont take photos of her...and my honest answer which i told her is that i dont want to mix my photography with my relationship because then i have to judge, make adjustments in photoshop, fix this, fix that, and if she doesnt like it, then i have to fix what she doesnt like....i just dont want to get into that, as i know this will lead to arguments...am i wrong? I could care less about what other model i shoot, i can judge them for myself all i want and they wont know about it...i dont know if this is coming out the way i want it to, but that sums it up.

I have been saving a shoot for my gf for months now and she knows this and she doesnt want to do the shoot any time i ask her to....so she doesnt have the drive for it either, but then it gets brought up every now and then about me not shooting her...any advice?

Then shoot her...what woman doesnt want to think of themselves as pretty enough to be in front of a enthusiastic photographer that just happens to be their SO...put the shoe on the other foot, if she was the photographer and never shot you, even though you occasionally brought it up that you were interested, what would be your reaction. Her overall mood may well change about it, but if you never shoot her, you will never know..;)

When it ceases to be fun, it will be time to walk away

I agree. Shoot her, and for the purposes of the shoot, treat her like a regular client - pose her, direct her, and (if necessary) photoshop her, just like you would anyone else. Schedule a time with her and pick a place - maybe even rent a hotel room and make a nice weekend of it.

I'm betting you better treat her better than any client!

Gee this is my longest post.....hahaha Just had a chat with the wife and she's willing to do some private fine arts stuff :-) I've been shooting a lot of Glamour and I do give my wife credit for being cool about me shooting Glamour stuff.

When were together and the conversation of my hobby comes up, most all wives and GF's say...you let your husband do that??

My girl that cuts my hair looked at my stuff and she said the same thing...your wife lets you do that???

I've been shooting now for over 40 years. I've never been married, but had a few serious (and more than a few un-serious) girlfriends. A couple were obviously uncomfortable with it, some were downright jealous. But my best girlfriend used to say, "I don't care where he gets his appetite, as long as he eats at home."

My wife doesn't care if they're clothed or not, we've been married 14 years and only last year started photographing people. Her thoughts are more toward she's got free time to herself. She's also said, "If they wanted you, it's only a matter of time before they send you back." ;)

I just reread some of the earlier posts concerning models half your wives age. Do they actually think a model that young would want an old guy? Most are the same age as my daughter and are more excited to see their significant other after the shoot. Just because they can pull off a seductive look doesn't mean they are interested. To them it is just a job.

As far as "why don't you photograph other things?", I photograph whatever pays. I'm sure if it were half naked guys, she'd be sitting right next to me watching the post processing.... or helping on the shoot!

I've been married a few years (2nd marriage), my wife has been somewhat "okay" with me shooting female models, but is now starting to feel uncomfortable. She trusts me completely, but wants to know why I want to shoot women instead of landscape, macros, etc.

I'll admit, working with 20 something models (I'm late 40s) is fun and I am learning a lot about lighting and posing. I'll have to see how our continued conversations about this subject work out.

Any good recommendations for the discussion?

Knak.
May or may not work, but tell her she is lucky you do not shoot stills for xxxrated movie companies. No, better not.


A photograph is worth a thousand words, but Photoshop can produce a thousand lies. Photo editing allowed. I need all the help I can get.
